God DAMN. So very close. If it had been in black/blonde with no F-Hole I would be at full salute right now. But fuck that. It's good, but it ain't all that.

There's better looking copies for less on Dhgate. Meh.

Still holding out for the real thing someday.

there's alot of chinese ones online in the sub400 dollar range (murica dollars). all kinds of colors too, they look dead on, and based on youtube videos and reviews they're pretty solid.

always could do an pickup swap

I saw a Stone Roses show where Mani threw his similar looking Rickenbacker bass at his amp.

I get the same feeling looking at this bass. Do want.

Quick fix: big sticker.

I think I want, but it looks so weird I'd always have a problem with something about it. And after playing the Paul McCartney sig Ric, I think my desire for a Rickenbacker is gone.

I would get one only to look at, or do Lemmy impressions.

I like it but agree the f-hole doesn't do anything for it. It also needs a bigger, weirder headstock.
